Swift & Company's 1919 Earnings
How They Affected You
During the twelvemonths ended November 1, 1919,
(its fiscal year), Swift & Company transacted its
large volume of business on the smallest margin of
profit in its history.
Sales over $l,20O,CO0,0O0.00
Net earnings $13,870,181.34
Our shipments were in excess of 5,500,000,000 lbs.
This means that our earnings were less than 1V
cents on each dollar of sales, or a quarter of a cent on
each pound shipped.
The average consumer eats about lb. of
meat per day 180 lbs. per year. If he
purchased only Swift & Company products
he would have contributed only 45 cents
(180 lbs. cent a pound) a year profit to
Swift & Company for its investment and
service, less than one cent per week.
Our earnings were so small as to have prac
tically no effect on the family meat bill
Live Stock Raiser ?
Swift & Company handled in' 1919 over
16,000,000 head of live stock. You can figure
for yourself that our earnings of llA cents
on each dollar of sales are too small to affect
the price you received for your stock.
We paid all it was humanly possible to pay
considering what the meat and by-products
could be sold for.

the hair and scalp thoroughly of
all the dandruff, dirt and excess oil,

it looks more abundant than it is,
and so soft that arranging it be
comes a pleasure. Just use a tea
spoonful of canthrox, which you
can get from any good druggist,
dissolve it in a cup of hot water:
this msfkes a full cup of shampoo

your dandruff will be gone, and
three or four more applications will
